Hubert Rampersad
TPS International

Hubert Rampersad returns to Portugal to talk us about his most recent book "Personal Balanced Scorecard" applied to companies of high grouth potential. Hubert is specially atracted by venture capital as he considers that recent created companies, developing fast and complex structures, have a good opportunity to apply Balanced Scorecard since the beggining, instead of developing it later when the companie is already running with all its habits.

During his stay in Portugal, this specialist will realize two seminars, one in OPorto and another in Lisbon, dedicated toBalanced Scorecard.
